Bob Arum promotes Manny Pacquiao, and it's no secret he's no longer sees eye-to-eye with Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
However, Arum went entirely too far when he compared Money to Joseph Goebbels.
For two years Pacquiao has said that he will take any drug test whoever administers it so why is that still being talked about by Mayweather? You see Mayweather is from the school of propaganda that Joseph Goebbels, who was (Adolf) Hitler’s publicist, adopted. The more you say things over and over again the more people believe them.
That statement was not necessary at all, but Arum resorted to name calling, which is also an indication of how far the two parties are from ever agreeing on a fight.
It's rather sad that Pac-Man and Pretty Boy Floyd may never fight because the two sides just can't agree.
Did Arum Go Too Far With His Recent Comments?
There's nothing wrong with disliking someone, but you should never go too far with your frustration, especially if you are public figure like Arum.
If his point was to say Mayweather is all talk and whatever he says anyone will believe, there are other ways to go about this.
Arum never had to even mention Goebbels or Hitler, but instead just skip that part and mention how Money likes to repeat the same thing over and over.
Unfortunately, Arum took it too far, and hopefully Mayweather doesn't try to verbally retaliate.
Considering the many failed negations between the two parties, name calling is not the best approach right now, especially when it's taken to a completely different level like Arum has now done.
Taking verbal jabs at each other is one thing, but Pacquiao's promoter (and Mayweather's former promoter) threw more than just punches here.
Maybe one day both parties will all set aside their differences.
However, with each new day, it's becoming much less likely boxing fans will see Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.
